AC Milan supremo Massimo Allegri believes that in Zlatan Ibrahimovic they have a player who is equal to both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
Whilst Messi and Ronaldo have proven their talent time and again at the highest level - perhaps most notably last season when the two competed for the Primera Liga golden boot award, and outscored all their rivals by over 10 goals each - Ibrahimovic has sometimes flattered to deceive.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho were both keen to remain upbeat after Real Madrid suffered a potentially damaging defeat to Osasuna on Sunday evening.
Javier Camunas’ second-half winner condemned Real to a loss that sees them now seven points behind Barcelona at the top of La Liga. With their titles hopes suffering a severe setback, Mourinho and Ronaldo both faced the media after the match and attempted to maintain a positive outlook.
